WARNING Ultimate trivium:
Ducky corrects Tony on the use of "whom."
' "Who" is the nominative case.'
He's correct, and 'nominative' is correct. Lately all grammar handbooks want to rename the nominative case and call it 'subjective' instead. Ducky's right; they are wrong.
Next Ducky says, ' "Whom" is objective, and always follows a preposition.'
He's half right. It is objective, but it could be a direct object or an indirect object, both of which are objective case uses.
Immediately after, Ziva uses "whomever" incorrectly:
'Probably to make the delivery to whomever hired him.'
Her error: 'whoever hired him' would be a noun clause, and the phrasal object of 'to.' And ' whoever' should be the subject of the verb 'hired,' not the object of the preposition ' to.'
Now a further note, even more trivial: Ducky's Scottish education (Edinburgh) necessarily means that he can read, write, and speak Latin. If he were consistent, he would probably have pointed out the differences among the three objective case uses: accusative (direct object), dative (indirect object), and ablative (object of a preposition). The German language retains both accusative and dative, but has lost the ablative. The English objective case sjubsumes all three, and rolls them into one.
I apologise for the prolixity, but in my defence, I'm a retired Professor of English.
